Much better than expected. Host, James, was friendly, helpful and informative about the gaol. Simple accomodation as expected but very clean. Communal bathroom was renovated, clean and modern. Would recommend to anyone.

It was quite an adventure staying in an old cell in an old jail. Of course we were completely comfortable!

A really unique experience in an atmospheric place where the owners have made huge efforts to provide comforts the former inmates would never have experienced! A fun stay and a great change from your typical regional accommodation options. Really highly recommend but do understand there are shared facilities and it is still very much the vibe of the original gaol. But that is what makes it so great!
